Covid-19

COVIDSafe app

The COVIDSafe app is part of the Government’s work to slow the spread of COVID-19. Having confidence we can find and contain outbreaks quickly will mean governments can ease restrictions while still keeping Australians safe.

 Clubs Queensland considers endorsement and support of the App will be an effective tool in demonstrating the industry’s commitment to ensuring safety.
  
Clubs are encouraged to have staff download the App and encourage the same of your members. If Clubs could please advise Clubs Queensland of doing this, this data can be fed back to government to show the industry’s commitment to use of the App.

Recovery plan


The Prime Minister has announced a three-step plan to recovery and the Premier, the Honourable Anastasia Palaszczuk, has also now held a press conference.

This is what we know:

1. As of Saturday 16 May 2020, as part of stage one (1), clubs may commence dinning in their cafes, restaurants and bistros.  This will be limited to 10 people at any one time, while observing social distancing of 1.5m and at least 1 person per four square meters of space.  There is to be no bar or gaming activities at this stage.

These venues must have a COVID-19 Safe Plan in place.  We understand that the Queensland Government has prepared a COVID-19 Safe Plan which will be available for distribution in due course.  Clubs Queensland has also developed risk management documents which will be made available for our member clubs in due course.

For those Clubs in Outback Queensland (please refer above for the map), this is increased to 20 people.  There is still to be no bar or gaming activities. 

Outdoor, non-contact related activity may re-commence with a maximum of 10 people. 

2. As of 12 June 2020, as part of the stage two restrictions this will increase to 20 people for the above activities (50 for Clubs in Outback Queensland).

3. As of 10 July 2020, as part of stage three (3), registered and licensed clubs may re-open, with limits of 100 people.  This will extend to bar and gaming activities. 

At this stage, Clubs Queensland understands the above caps do not include employees.

With all of these steps the public health rules are to maintain:
  • Physical distancing
  • 4 square metres per person when indoors
  • Hand hygiene
  • Respiratory hygiene
  • Frequent environmental cleaning and disinfection
